Abstract:

A mystery to outsiders, the practice of conference interpreting
nevertheless involves techniques that are quite easily grasped if well
explained. Roderick Jones adopts a very practical approach to both
consecutive and simultaneous interpreting, providing detailed
illustrations of note-taking, reformulation, the "salami" technique,
simplification, generalization, anticipation, and so on, including
numerous tricks-of-the-trade such as how to handle difficult speakers
and how to interpret untranslatable jokes. Numerous examples are
offered at every stage, all in English or "foreignized" English.

Although primarily written as a practitioner's explanation rather than
a theorist's speculation, the book includes notes on concepts such as
units of meaning, translation units and discourse structure, as well
as stances on more polemical issues such as the use of omission and
the ethics of interpreting mistakes. The book concludes with a comment
on the pleasure of conference interpreting, as well as a glossary and
suggested further readings. In all, it fills a major gap in
English-language publications on interpreting, providing an
introduction for beginners, a down-to-earth guide for students, and a
handy compendium for teachers.

Roderick Jones has worked for some fifteen years as a staff
interpreter for the European Union in Brussels, where he also trains
conference interpreters.
